What makes HAMILTON so special?
For the uninitiated, HAMILTON is the story of America’s Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, an immigrant from the West Indies who became George Washington’s right-hand man during the Revolutionary War and was the new nation’s first Treasury Secretary. Besides fantastic storytelling, the score is absolutely top-notch and like nothing you’ve ever heard before, blending hip hop, jazz, blues, rap, R&B, and Broadway together.
It’s based on Ron Chernow’s biography of Alexander Hamilton. The Broadway production features book, music, and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda. It was directed by Thomas Kail, choreography by Andy Blankenbuehler. Musical supervision and orchestrations are by Alex Lacamoire.
The musical premiered on Broadway in August 2015 and quickly became a critical success, taking home 11 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the Grammy Award for Best Musical Theatre Album. It opened in England in December 2017 winning seven Olivier Awards, including Best New Musical and Outstanding Achievement in Music.
“The premiere season of HAMILTON in Australia was incredibly successful, but we know so many fans missed out. We couldn’t resist the opportunity to return to Sydney one last time.”Michael Cassel, Australian Producer
